Skavlan is hosted by a Norwegian journalist. The first guests to appear on the show were former Prime Minister of Sweden Gran Persson and his wife Anitra. On May 8, 2009, it was announced that Skavlan had been renewed for a second season. The show would no longer be produced by S VT in Sweden but by the Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation. The first twelve episodes of Skavlan's second season were produced in Sweden and Norway. If the people being interviewed are Swedish, Skavlan often tells them to let him know if they don't understand what he's saying. According to Jan Guillou, there is no need for S VT to subtitling the program. It doesn't make sense to subtitling with a Norwegian host.
